Calling all allergy sufferers! (Excuse my stuffy nose-nerd-voice.) Yes, you! This yoga magic in the picture above is seriously the best remedy in the world for the headaches, stiff necks and swollen glands rampant in the oh-so-fragrant springtime.
I’ll be teaching this, along with a dozen other magical yoga tricks for healing your painful aches, this upcoming Saturday, April 29, 2017 in my “Yoga for Pain Relief” Workshop. The workshop is held at Westport Yoga KC and runs from 2-4 pm. You can find details and registration links on our brand-spanking-new website: www.westportyogakansascity.com
Yoga is a system of thought (science) and worldview (cosmology) which originated in the Indus River Valley about 5,000 years ago and evolved to include:
- A medicine component: called Ayurveda
- A movement component: called Asana
- A breathing component: called Pranayama
All 3 of these components of yoga can contribute to a healthy mind and body. Yoga is primarily a way worldview that orients oneself in the universe to be free from suffering (or self-inflicted frustration.) In this workshop, we will learn how to use the therapeutic poses in the yoga system to relieve pain in the places we most commonly experience chronic pain: neck, shoulders, back, hips and heart. Stress manifests in our bodies as discomfort; learning techniques to relieve pain and discomfort opens a world of healing. I’d love to share with you the ways to relieve pain and suffering in the mind and in the body– the workshop is filling up quickly, so please register soon! (Open registration is $35 (WY Members are $25).
See you soon,
